Buy a cleaner at a decent audio/video store. Don't use use those cheapie CDs either. If this doesn't work?, then...

What kind of burner? How Old is it? What software is used? Windows 95 or 98? etc...

The newer ROXIO (versions 7 and 8) software don't support Windows 95 or 98 any more. Your burner might be too old, so that latest software updates no longer recognize it either. Then go back to an older version of software. These downloads can be found on the internet.

"I have been through two burners in last 4 years, usually when I am unable to complete be it a few seconds or a track or so, the burner was the problem."

Not every CD burner or software program has an overburn feature!

I have 3 burners. One was made for Windows 95 and 98 a decade ago. That's good enough for a tinker toy system built from older components. Nero 5540 is right for this setup. Good for the kids.

Another also supports 2K and XP. The newest model requires Windows 98 Second Edition or later platforms.

There isn't enough information to know exactly what's up here...

Bought a spindle of Memorex cdr's that refuse to work at all in my burner.
Maxell cdr's seem to work consistantly.
How little some things have changed over 25 or so years...

MEMOREX cassettes were not much good during thre old tape days. Why would their cheapie CDes be any better? Stay away from the odd ball brands. Are you really surprised that MAXELL, TDK or FUJI would work better in your drive? I'm not. Somethings never change.

You might even visit your burner's factory website. Many provide a list CDr brands, that have been factory tested in their products...
